[QUOTE=hope555;2***226]Hey Ritah!!
Thnks for ur reply. At least I know its not ALL in my head. The oral iron pills appear to help a little...but still not even close to enough. Just wondering what iron fusions are? r. I hope having slightly low ferritin isn't an emergency..[/QUOTE]
[FONT="Comic Sans MS"][B]The symptoms you describe don't sound like those of a slightly low ferritin level. The last time my levels dropped I also experienced shortness of breath and heart palpations. It can become serious.
I am having an IV iron infusion on the 27th. My levels are dropping again and I have a wonderful doctor (Hematologist) who is keeping a close eye on my numbers. I am just starting to feel the downward trend. I am so tired all the time.
Infusions are not so bad. I get the InFeD IV Infusions. I will probably have to have them every six months. They take a couple of weeks to kick in. The dizziness (for me) disappears after a week, then slowly the energy comes back.
I get copies of all my labs and watch for any changes. HTH
